Following the success of the first SCA concert at Arnolfini in November 2011, the Bristol Ensemble Quartet returns with a concert that pays tribute to David Bedford, leading British composer and former SCA President, who died in October 2011.
Famous for early collaborations with Mike Oldfield and Kevin Ayers, Bedford straddled the worlds of rock and contemporary classical music. His 2nd Quartet, written in 1998 combines lyricism with fast-moving virtuosity rising to a dramatic climax.
